Ricks 32...

Lone Willow Tree

Willow tree
You weep for me
As I stand
Beneath your sprawling limbs
Come comfort me today
From the world
That surrounds me
Set me free
Willow tree
Do dry your tears
I am strong
I carry a steel shield
Wards off the pain that comes
My angel
Is always near
Takes my fear

Willow tree
Spread your branches
Wide and true
Let the sun now shine through
Take the chill from my soul
As I touch
My fingertips
To your heart
- Rhoda Galgiani
